Charlotte Observer
Salva's view of the universe is bleak, but he communicates it with scary sincerity.
83
Portland Oregonian
Balancing homage with creativity, the picture is tight, stylishly filmed, clever and, importantly, scary.

Slate
The movie is good enough to put a chill into the late-summer air. Salva has nasty surprises in the grim, minor-key last third, during which the feeling dawns on you that sleep for the next few nights won't come easily.

Chicago Reader
The story (what there is of it) doesn't make much sense, but this is a very scary horror thriller that should keep you either on the edge of your seat or halfway under it.
67
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Salva spins a backwoods serial killer setup into something really scary.
63
New York Daily News
Horror fans will still find it worthwhile. The ending is also a nice twist on the slasher genre.
50
The first half-hour of this movie is sensational, creating an atmosphere of dread that any horror master would envy.
42
Entertainment Weekly
Turns into a grab-bag freak show as desperate as it is arbitrary.
40
Works up a reasonably delicious tingle.
40
L.A. Weekly
Salva falls back on dull, jumbled action and an awkward subplot as he lurches toward a sequel.
